Surely she could have left something to her children while leaving the bulk of the fortune to a charity?

From what I have read (one or two articles regarding her will), she was estranged from her children and didn't have a lot of money to leave them. And according to the article, the home that she lived in was part of a trust ( I assume that will benefit the current Earl), so I think any and all money will be earned via the auction.

What a needless tragedy! The murder of Sandra Rivett, as well as the disappearance of Lord Lucan had a lasting affect on both the late Lady Lucan and her children. I've read that things were never the same for her or the children.

She wasn't rich perhaps by aristocratic standards but she wasn't poor... and Im sure she had some personal items that she could have left as keepsakes to her children. but she was estranged from them. I think that her mental health was never too stable, even before the murder, and Lucan was trying to emphasise that, in order to get the children.

She had almost 800K which is not too shabby and a nice donation for the charity. Shame about the death duties and the fact that she didn't have a relationship with her children.

Weird question about death duties for our UK members...if the deceased is donating a portion (or all) of their estate to a charity...are they excused for having to pay the tax?

The Duke and Duchess of Devonshire during a photocall ahead of the re-opening of Chatsworth House in Derbyshire, following the largest renovation of the estate since the 1820s, which has taken ten years and cost &pound 32 million.

Yes, it is impressive indeed. And especially the third picture posted by Eya - you can't realize how large and huge the building is until you see how tiny a man and a woman appear in comparison.

I think the fact that the Devonshire’s always seem to welcome visitors have made their enterprise successful. They know they have a great collection, and seem happy to show it works to their advantage. It seems that those with the greatest treasures are the most willing to welcome the public. The ones with the least to show seem to be the ones that act superior and tolerate the public because they have to.

The decade long restoration has been amazing seeing the paintings/tapestries and sculptures cleaned up and looking pristine again.

On her father's side she is the great-granddaughter of Brig.-Gen. Thomas Pakenham, 5th Earl of Longford and his wife Lady Mary Julia Child-Villiers, daughter of the 7th Earl of Jersey.

On her mother's side she is the great-granddaughter of Field Marshal Francis Wallace Grenfell, 1st Baron Grenfell and the great-great-granddaughter of the Rt. Hon. Sir Julian Goldsmid, 3rd Bt.

In addition to the link given by Gawin in the previous post this is always a very good site when it comes to the British nobility and gentry.
